Residents of a Baldwin Hills neighborhood are pleading with the owner of their buildings not to sell to new owners who might push them out.
They’re worried about the lack of affordable housing in an area that they say is rapidly gentrifying.
It is a neighborhood where a lot of people pay below market rate. They say that’s what they can afford and they don’t know where they’ll go if they’re pushed out which seems like an increasing possibility.
The rent they pay is increasingly rare. For Kimberly Roberson’s 2-bedroom where she’s lived with her daughter for 25 years, her rent is $1,000 a month.
